Yay! A Q1 Finish Along finish, registered just under the wire. Introducing Cloudy With a Chance of Lime:
I began this quilt in a workshop by my lovely and talented friend Krista (Poppyprint) Hennebury. MQG members might recognize the pattern from the MQG Pattern of the Month series - this is Miss September. My quilt's name is the result of some wonderful suggestions I got on Instagram - Twist of Lime, Citrus Twist....but I wanted to include the grey somehow, and I thought of clouds...and the rest just fell into place.
I quilted each area using a matching thread. The green is 40 weight Aurifil 3320, and the grey is Aurifil 2605 in 50 weight. I FMQd some triangleish zigzags and just travelled where I needed to when I got to end of a row. Let's call it a design decision.
It's not large - only about 29" x 40", but it fits perfectly in our stairwell at home.
I backed it with some old IKEA bird fabric I had floating around, and I faced the quilt rather than using a traditional binding. You can see the facing, which is about 1.5" wide, on the back of the quilt if you look closely.
Here's my requisite "up shot" - I will miss the arbours in my townhouse's courtyard when we move. It's the perfect quilt-photography spot.
